Dr. W grew up in southern Idaho the youngest of 5 kids. As the grandson of a dairy farmer he spent much of his time raising steer from his uncle’s land and tending to the apple orchard, garden, and yard with his dad.
While he played as many sports as he could, his passion was football. He was affectionately dubbed “Beast” by his coaches and unaffectionately dubbed “snowplow” by opposing players
His parents appropriately discouraged such “barbaric” activities and encouraged Dr. W to learn the finer arts and academics – so he focused on school, art, and learned to play the guitar, violin and piano (thanks mom). As a result he developed a rather unique reputation as the hard-hitting, yet considerate, artist.
After high school class he attended BYU-Idaho where he earned a degree in Biology and Chemistry. He continued to round out his skill-set with diverse classes and activities before meeting his wife, a graduating nurse, who supported him on his way to dental school.
Dr. Williams earned his dental degree from the University of Iowa where he learned the true meaning of midwest hospitality and has since wanted to pay that forward to everyone he meets. After a wonderful dental education he moved his family to Colorado to specialize in Orthodontics and earn a Master’s Degree in science and a professional certificate in Orthodontics.
Since that time Dr. W has lived in Idaho, Oklahoma, and Tri-Cities, WA where he had been practicing orthodontics. He and his wife have 4 wonderful daughters (c’est la vie to his football heritage). In spring of 2017 they had a boy – Weston – to whom he hopes to endow his love for football. Dr. W enjoys playing tea and story time with his daughters, watching movies and sports with his kids (if they let him watch sports), fantasy football, life-long learning, giving back to the community, and he and his family are very excited to be Spokanites for life.
